Pontefract announce new PSL sponsor for 2012/13
Pontefract Squash and Leisure Club are pleased to announce that our Premier Squash League team will this year be sponsored by Nottinghamshire based direct asset brokers AJP Worldwide, a company with over 30 years experience in the investment industry.
The company’s Managing Director, Nigel Griffin, is a keen squash enthusiast who plays regularly himself. His involvement with squash is already well established and this collaboration with Pontefract extends his personal involvement but also brings his company into the sport at the top level.
Nigel said “I am delighted that AJP Worldwide will be associated with Pontefract in the Worlds best squash league and I am looking forward to the season ahead. My company has a well deserved reputation in our field of expertise and so it is only fitting that we have formed a partnership with one of the World’s best known squash clubs.”
The Premier Squash League showcases the very best squash players from 12 Clubs across the country. When tour commitments permit AJP Pontefract will be able to call upon the services of current world number 1 professional, James Willstrop, Indian number 1 and World number 23 Saurav Ghosal, a strong contingent of India’s other top players including Siddharth Suchde, Harinder Pal Sandhu and top women’s player Dipika Pallikal, and a welcome addition this season Sarah Kippax.
Former World number one players Lee Beachill and Vanessa Atkinson will be involved once again and Pontefract’s aspiring young players are included in the squad and are likely to feature throughout the season when the professionals aren’t available.
Head coach, Malcolm Willstrop, said “Pontefract has shown in previous seasons that we can win matches convincingly when we are at full strength and I expect this season to be no different. Our young players have shown they are good enough to play in this league and the experience they will gain will be of immense benefit to them and the club in the future.”
